BAL EN BLANC 16

image

Long story short, my friend got sick and gave me his ticket to go to this year’s Bal en blanc at Palais des Congrès de Montréal. And I’ve got to say, thanks bud’, it was amazing.

There was two rooms, one for House and the other for Trance (they called that room Tech or something). Both rooms had massive line-ups and were both packed. I personally preferred the Trance room , but I still have to say David Guetta and LMFAO rocked the place in the house room. Trance just has this extra feel during a rave… it’s more like… “epic” (I hate that word, but whatever). And the bass was sick.

The lighting was fawking amazing in both room. The House room had this big screens that lit a BIG surface (not projectors), they were sick (check some youtube videos if you really want to see it). The Trance room had some insanely big projectors that projected sweet effects on the front wall that was made of some “cubicles” and a bigger place (about 2 cubicles) for the DJ. There was also some people dancing in separate cubicles and 2 big screens showing the DJ from the back, the people dancing or simply the crowd going nuts. ‘T WAS AMAZING. Sooooo on to the line-ups… and of course, comments AND A LITTLE SURPRISE!

House Room

21:00-23:30 Etienne Ozborne

I didn’t really listen a lot to this guy (maybe 30ish minutes), but from what I heard, he was doing great at warming up the crowd.

23:30-1:00 Cesar “Bass” Romero

I heard a little bit more of this guy (while waiting for LMFAO actually… we wanted to be in the first row, and we were!). He played house music and mixed his songs with a lot of ease; his transitions were smooth and he only played the best tracks out there, the crowd had a lot of fun.

1:00-2:00 LMFAO

LMFAO was really awesome, they were singing and dancing and had a DJ play their stuff in the back. They made the first couple rows wet with some Grey Goose and some Champagne and drank some live. They were extremely entertaining and knew what they were doing. What really sucks though is that they only played for an hour… Oh well!

2:00-5:00 David Guetta

I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t listen to much of his set, just the beginning and the ending (maybe 30 minutes each). He was really good and made the crowd go totally nuts at least 10 times while I was there. He played tracks from his latest album as well as some more electroish/dutch songs. I enjoyed his set and so did a lot of people (that’s what they told me!).

5:00-7:00 Kaskade

I maybe listened 30 minutes of Kaskade and then I was starting to fall asleep. I’m not saying he’s not a great DJ, but his first 30 minutes were filled with low intensity tracks and I was losing energy staying there. His transitions were smooth and his songs were good. A funny thing happened though; while I was going to the Trance room with my friend, the speakers in the House room shut down and Kaskade had to… well… wait. Funny. I heard the rest was off the hook though!

7:00-9:30 Ana Paula

I didn’t listen to her at all so I cannot really comment much, but the House room was still pretty packed so I guess she was pretty good!

9:30-12:00 David Morales

I didn’t listen to him either! But my guess was that he wasn’t bad either! Every DJ was good yesterday.

 

TRANCE ROOM

9:00-0:00 Wizz and Insomnia (Tag Team)

I listened a good hour and a half to these guys and they were really good! They were warming the crowd in a certain way… hmmm… well the crowd didn’t need a warm up, so they just went all out I guess. Great set!

0:00-1:30 Infected Mushrooms

HOLY SHIT THAT WAS AMAZING. The band really messed people up and what they play is just fucked. It’s some sort of Hard Tech music. It’s really fast and really crazy, it was great for the event! I really enjoyed it and the crowd too. Everybody just jumped around and fist pumped, woot woot.

1:30-4:00 Sander Van Doorn

I got to listen to a big part of his set and it was really fun. Good build ups, transitions, tracks… everything! He delivered, really. The beat went on and on and on and on and it was great.

4:00-7:00 Ferry Corsten

My favorite of the night. He. Was. Insane. What he plays is progressive, but as soon as he gets into it, it’s one drop after another and a lot of noise effects to build up the hype and make people go nuts. I’ve never seen someone do a performance better than the one he did yesterday morning! He made me love trance even more. I listened to his latest album Once Upon a Night and it’s really neat! You should listen to it. Oh, and he did a mistake once and I heard it, but it’s barely audible. He just forgot to switch his crossfader back to one track only, so when he was cueing his track, we heard it. Hahaha.

7:00-10:00 Markus Schulz

This guy was amazing as well and I’m sad I had no energy to stay for more than around an hour for him! He played Trance like Ferry, but a little more glitchy, which made it less epic, but more messed up. Great DJ… super great DJ!

10:00-12:00 Sied Van Riel

I’ll let you guess from my previous paragraph… YESS. I MISSED THIS GUY TOO! I was almost home at this point of the night/day/morning/whatever. I’ll take another educated guess… he was good! Everybody did great so I think he did the same. I’ll be able to tell you after listening to his live set.

 

Since I’m an amazing person, I didn't bring anything for pictures or videos, but MoonOne was awesome and did a video of the night! By the way that rabbit a the start was just plain cool.



It was an insane night and it is totally worth the price (I know, I didn’t pay, shut up), I’m going back next year and I hope all my friends will too. Great music, great hype, great place. Love Bal en Blanc.

And you Trance lovers will love me. I found the whole Trance part of Bal en Blanc recorded in pretty high quality (perfect quality for big mixes). Here are the links and the tracklists (at the end of the post) that I could find. Some tracks are missing but whatever. Under each name is just different links to the SAME mix, just click any (MEGAUPLOAD IS THE FASTEST HOST).
